2021 Academy Update
– We were disappointed not to offer Rainbow Snowsports Academy last season. At this stage we are unsure about 2021 for similar reasons. The main one being, getting enough qualified instructors with NZ's border still potentially closed.
We will release the information to you about whether or not we can offer this product as soon as we can make a decision. This is likely to be closer to the opening of the season. Our apologies to those that factor in their pass purchase, with the purchase of Academy. Unfortunately, at this stage it is too early to know the staff that will be available to us to hire for the 2021 season.
We are looking at alternative options, including running a Kids Ski Club with volunteers and will keep you informed as we work through our options.
If you need any further information or guidance please don't hesitate to e-mail our friendly Snow Sports Team.
